Ogunquit Beach translates from the Abenaki language as "beautiful place by the sea." It is an apt name for the resort that offers sandy beaches framed by cliffs along the water. Swimmers will want to head to the river lagoon with a sandbar that indicates shallow water ideal for wading and swimming. The area is known for being a lesbian-, gay-, bisexual-, and transgender-friendly community. Consider browsing the boutiques near the water and enjoying refreshments with a view over the beach.

  • I've been going to this beach area for 69 years and at 72, am planning our summer trip for the summer of 2018. We rent a beach cottage either in Wells or a B&B along the beach and it never gets old . ...  more »
  • Ogunquit has to be the best beach! Ogunquit has the beach with surf on one side and the river on the other side, so you can play in the waves on one side of the beach and tube in and out with the tide...  more »
  • Ogunquit Beach has as much charm and beauty in the winter as it does in the summer minus the hoards of tourists. A walk on the beach in January has its own unique tranquility  more »

  • Beautiful place to walk and enjoy the views all year round. Actually went up towards the end of October, the foliage was amazing, and it was still pretty warm. Came back two weeks later much cooler, but not unbearably cold. Took our kayaks out in the cove, very nice smooth current, enjoyable paddling very relaxing. The water was very cold, but so clear and clean it was amazing. Can't wait to go back again.
  • Top 10 beach in all of the USA love the town You have to arrive by 8am in the summer not much space for parking. The town has not changed it's values in the last 50 years. The best family beach
  • We've been going to Ogunquit my entire life. One of my favorite places year round. My parents went there before I was born and now we take my son. It feels like our second home.
  • Really nice stroll on a pretty beach. Pretty day. Turbulent too. Lots of rip tide action. It was fun to watch this and the waves in general.
  • Gr8 spot to wait out traffic before heading home. Around 5pm parking becomes free. The restaurants range from fine dining to a shack with fries. Nice views and at that time not crowded.
